Let me just start by saying that Fry is NOT my horse, so please don't critique him. I'm super lucky to be able to ride a horse like him in my lessons, but I have no control over his training or anything of that sort so...yeah.
I had a really good lesson with him on Friday. I wasn't riding with my normal trainer and it was our first lesson outside for the year but it was nice. We worked on feeling diagonals vs. looking [I'm horrible about it haha], and feeling the rhythm to look for a distance [unfortunately these clips were before we did an exercise that really helped me out with finding distances].
I have this bad habit of sitting super far back on my seat bones, which I've been trying to correct. I also tend to let my shoulders get behind my hips for the last few strides before the jump, which I'm getting better about. But..yeah. Thoughts?
[oh, and my glasses kept wanting to slide off my face, so if you see me take a hand off the reins I was probably fixing that]
Here's a few screen shots in case you don't want to watch the videos
And a clip from a couple weeks ago, if you want to critique that as well
JUST FOR COMPARISON...here was my first lesson on Frenchie. It's taken some time for me to figure out how to ride him, lol
